If you haven’t heard of the The Rebel Dining Society already you need to pay close attention. Renowned for pushing the boundaries in fine dining, London’s infamous food collective regularly host events showcasing the most exciting culinary innovation alongside live performances.
Housed in a former chapel among the warehouses and fast food establishments of Vyner Street, the eccentric bunch serves up veritable feasts of Gazpacho jelly, minted pea macaroons and duck breast on a vanilla cloud. The aim of the venture is to provide upscale eating experiences without the hefty price tag.
Uniting their passion for all things food, science and art related, the group regularly contribute to, and host, numerous projects and events working alongside creative brands including Umbro, Pernod Absinthe, and Land Of Kings Festival. These convivial experiences usually begin with diners having to locate secret venues before being treated to culinary banquets, acts of social revelry and live music.
The society are also key members of the culinary creative set Experimental Food Society, a London based group of food conceptualists and gourmet artists that include jelly mongers Bompass and Parr, cake sculptors and sugarcraft artists alike.
As already featured in our recent Zeitgeist feature Dining With Alice, earlier last month, theatrical gastronomy is an already prevalent food trend, with culinary artists and collectives emerging in the industry every few months. Long may it continue.
